Nor'easter Continues in Atlantic Canada


Most of Atlantic Canada is continuing to contend with a strong nor'easter that is bringing rain, snow, and strong winds to the region.


Snow will continue across most of eastern Quebec this morning. There is also a risk of freezing rain. In the heaviest snow 20 to 30 cm of snow is possible, particularly in the Gaspé area.


Rain will taper off across Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island this morning if it hasn't already done so. In New Brunswick, we will continue to receive rain in eastern areas and snow in western areas. Across southern Nova Scotia, winds may gust to 100 km/h at times this morning.


A further 5 to 10 mm of rain is expected today. As temperatures cool tonight, that rain will change to snow with about 5 cm expected tonight. In western areas, another 10 cm is expected today and potentially another 5 to 10 cm tonight.


Most of Newfoundland will see showers or drizzle today. On the Northern Peninsula, a rain and snow mix is possible. Snow is expected in southeastern Labrador. Up to 25 cm is possible in the heaviest snow. In southwestern Newfoundland, wind gusts to 90 km/h are possible this morning.
